Blogs can be...um, what's the word...boring! Yes, that's it. BO-RING! Which is why I don't subscribe to or read many of them. We all want each post to be scintillating, fascinating, and edge-of-your-seat riveting - but the (sad) fact is that most of us do not lead scintillating, fascinating, edge-of-your-seat riveting lives.
I was reading one guy's blog the other day. He was going on and on about being sick, about how he went out anyway to meet with a friend, a friend who was supposedly bringing Wendy's fast-food and how this guy was so expecting some Wendy's chili to help make him feel better...but the friend didn't bring the chili and you know if you want something done...
And I thought to myself, Oh dear Lord, will you just shut up!! I mean, really! Blogging about being sick? And then I went, Oh. Wait... I had done just that (see below). I went back to this guy's blog later and found that he'd posted about being sick for three days in a row! At least I didn't whine about it for that long.
Later on, he posted about "blogger's block." That is, having nothing to write about but feeling the self-imposed pressure to make a blog entry anyway, so you do. Then your blog becomes just one big snooze-fest. I try to avoid that, but even I sometimes think to myself, "Why am I writing this?" Like now.
